Dear PowerPlant Chemistry readers:
You are holding in your hands the first issue of the new year. As every year, the abstracts of all the articles published in this journal in the past year are
presented in this first issue. All the abstracts of the articles from 2016 â€“ as well as older abstracts â€“ can now be downloaded from our website. In 2017,
just as we have for the last eighteen years, we will continue to supply our readers on every continent with the most up-to-date information on the latest
developments in the power plant chemistry area. However, to achieve this goal, we need your help.
I am taking this opportunity to encourage chemists in power plants all around the world to supply more reports to our journal. Are you a person working in power
plant chemistry, in this exciting technical and scientific area? We are always looking for interesting papers. Share your experience with your colleagues from
other plants and take advantage of the chance to present a paper to our international readership.
I would also like to draw your attention to this year's conferences and meetings. Our events calendar aims to be as informative as possible. We try to list all
important events in all power plant chemistry areas from all over the world. As we can't have our eyes everywhere, it is possible that we might overlook one
event or another; if you think that there is an important event missing, please let us know!
There are two events I would like to mention specifically:
The International Association for the Properties of Water and Steam (IAPWS) is organizing an International Conference on Film Forming Amines and Products. The conference will take place in Lucerne,
Switzerland, on April 4–6, 2017. As a member of the steering committee, I would like to encourage all of you to attend the conference next year.
For further details, you can consult the announcement on page 24 of this issue, visit the webpage of the conference
(www.scpws.ch), or contact me directly.
Another conference I would like to mention here is the Fourth Meeting of the EHF (European HRSG Forum). The conference will be taking place in Amsterdam, the
Netherlands, on May 16–18, 2017. PowerPlant Chemistry is the media partner of this event, so mark it in your calendar – the details can be found on page
I'm looking forward to your letters and e-mails!
